Willmar, Minn., panel nearing end of discussion about best method to increase sewer rates


WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council's Finance Committee could be nearing the end of its discussion on proposing higher sewer rates to pay debt service, operation and maintenance of the $83 million wastewater treatment facility.

The committee asked finance consultant Springsted Inc. of St. Paul to study the effect of shifting more of the increase onto the water meter charge. Whatever revenue can be captured on the meter charge could be reduced on the consumption charge.
